A loan helped to purchase fabric and thread in bulk.

Gotitas De Lluvia Group's story

The Gotitas de Lluvia communal bank will begin its second loan cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Centro Focal Los Andes. It is made up of nine members and is led by officers of whom Vanessa is the president.

The loan that they will get now will benefit the small micro-entrepreneurs of whom Vanessa is one. Currently, she has a business selling polleras [traditional Andean skirts] (for cholitas [women who dress traditionally]). She says that she learned this business at her own initiative some years ago.

The loan that she will get now will be to increase her capital with the purchase of fabric and thread in bulk, which she will get from the wholesalers in the city of La Paz. After making them, she will sell them in her sales space.

This type of work allows her to generate resources to support her family economically since she is single and independent.
